    Re: [RC] Dixie and rugs - Ed and Wendy Hauser

    Walking on plasticized vinyl tends to remove the plasticizer from the vinyl.
    This has always been a problem with Nomad.  I remember early tests at (if I
    remember correctly) Broken Arrow OK, where the mat got stiff in a couple of
    weeks.  The sand and dust on feet removed the plasitcizer.  Better
    plasticizers helped.
    Use on a horses back, where absorbant dust is not being tracked over the
    pad, will not remove plasticizer.  The ones I used for many years died for
    other reasons.
